Five Pounds of Silly Putty

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

We were both attracted and repulsed by the idea of five pounds of Silly Putty, so we knew we had to share it with you.

Sure, you could probably duplicate an entire comic book with it. And while it’s possible that you might get bored with setting it on top of a smaller object (we’re thinking a matchbox car, or possibly a little Playmobil guy) and watching said object slowly become engulfed by oozing, flesh-colored goo… well, we seriously doubt it. The creative opportunities are endless really.

How about you? What can you imagine doing with a chunk of Silly Putty roughly the size of a human head?

$80 at The Crayola Store (Also comes in bright blue, purple/pink, and orange/yellow, if the original color is too disturbingly fleshy for you.)
